    Hi, I was wondering, does the new single day genie plus system allow for unlimited bookings throughout the day? If I don't pick the most popular rides like seven dwarves mine train, would I possibly be able to fit in more than 2 or 3 bookings? Thanks!

    Hey there, Jessica! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question!

    Well, you sound like someone after my own heart! The name of my Disney game is enjoying as many attractions as possible while waiting in line as little as possible, and it sounds as if you're looking to do the same. I am actually on my way home from my Walt Disney World Resort vacation right now (Wah! Sniff sniff.), and I added on Genie+ (single day add-ons) on the mornings I chose to use the system, so, you've come to the right place. Since Genie+ is a whole new world for you, I'm thrilled to share my experience with you today.

    We are a family of three, and we found that we were able to book way more than three Genie+ Lightning Lane selections, especially on our Magic Kingdom Park day, but it does require some strategy. I suggest waking up early and adding on your Genie+ service around 6:45 a.m. EST so that you are ready to book your first Lightning Lane selection right at 7 a.m. Remember, if you are staying in a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you can also purchase an Individual Lightning Lane selection (separate from the Genie+) at 7 a.m. If not, you can book an Individual Lightning Lane at park opening. We booked our first Genie+ Lightning Lane selection and purchased an Individual Lightning Lane for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train right at 7 a.m. Just keep in mind that Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane selections are subject to change, so, just keep an eye on the website for a list of which attractions are available to select as your vacation approaches. 

    One strategy we did use was to grab a Genie+ Lightning Lane selection for a must-do attraction at the earliest time available (prior to two hours after park opening) so that we could make another selection as soon as we used it. But it is also a MUST that you set a reminder on your phone for two hours after you make a selection so that you will know when to make your next selection. Time really does fly when you're having fun, and you don't want to miss your opportunity to make another selection as soon as you're eligible. We took a midday lunch and pool break, and while we were on this break, we made sure to continue to set a timer and make our afternoon and evening Lightning Lane selections every two hours. Then, when we went back to the park, we had several selections stacked up and ready to go!

    Using the strategy of making new selections after using one, combined with picking up a new one every two hours can sometimes get confusing. So, when you find yourself confused about when you can make a new Lightning Lane selection, just go to your Genie Tip Board and try to make your next desired selection. If it is not yet time to make a selection, it will tell you exactly when you are eligible to make your next selection. Then, set your reminder timer for that time. Remember - you can have overlapping times, but just make sure you arrive during your window! Phenomenal cosmic powers unlocked!

    Jessica, I hope this was helpful, and I hope you have the BEST time on your upcoming visit! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have. You ain't never had a friend like planDisney!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
